City of Harrison Mayor Bill Neyer provided a very informative presentation at the Greater Harrison Chamber’s Annual Breakfast Feb. 21. Neyer recapped some of 2018’s largest projects, including the JTM plant which is now fully operational and the brand new St. John the Baptist Church on Carolina Trace. New uses for the church’s former home¬†will be discussed during a full downtown development review later this year. Neyer also said the expansion of the Downtown District and Entertainment District has helped spur several redevelopment projects along the historic section of Harrison Avenue:

  • 301: will be a restaurant
  • 102: approved for a tap room
  • 419: Oak & Iron Handcrafted Furniture coming soon
  • 416: O’Reilly Floral Design coming soon
Neyer also shared updates about the City’s safety services, finances and public works. U.S. Congressman Steve Chabot spoke about the legislative agenda in Washington, expressing his support for efforts to stop illegal immigration. Chabot also¬†took time to answer questions from the crowd of 60. A special thanks to ApparelMaster Linen & Uniform Service for sponsoring our breakfast buffet.
